“Art of Latin America” yearbook is published by Adam Marszałek Pub-
lishing House and scientifically coordinated by the Polish Institute of World Art
Studies. Articles which are published in the periodical focus on art and visual
culture of Latin America. This third volume of the yearbook addresses issue of
a wide time range: the first article is devoted to cave paintings and the last — to
the issues associated with image reproduction in the modern world of commer-

is illustrated with immense iconographical material, which makes the text even

certain motifs in nahuatl texts and codes. Next two articles by Martin Isidoro
and Clelia Domoñi and by Jorge Luis Merlo Solorio concern the iconographical
issues of colonial art in the Viceroyalty of Peru and New Mexico.

The second part of the volume is devoted to various problems of modern
art. In his article, Carlos Dimeo describes how Barbaro Rivas, the first Vene-

two articles are linked with a figure of Che Guevara, whose image 1s also on the
